It is great to watch the waterfalls by the koslanda-wellawaya road, sipping tea seated in a road side shop. But there is a way to get to the top of the fall. One has to travel bit further towards poonagala and find the foot path by the makaldeniya bend. Ask a local they will show you the path. After some... More

Beautiful waterfall close to where we stayed - Living Heritage, Koslanda - we stopped to enjoy the scenery and take some photos on our way.

This is by far one of the best waterfalls I've been to. The main reasons for that is , there are less people frequenting this place (not a soul was around when we were there) and entire experience from the trek to having a dip in a natural pool at the very top of Sri Lankan's second highest waterfall was...

Five kilometres east of Koslanda the road passes the 171m-high Diyaluma Falls, Sri Lanka’s third-highest waterfall. Cascading down an escarpment of the Koslanda Plateau, the stream is fairly small, but it quickly escalates after a downpour. The falls leap over a cliff face and fall in one clear drop to a pool below.

Traveling between Koslanda and Weliwaya on the small and narrow but scenic A4 stretch will bring you face to face with the beautiful Diyaluma Falls. dropping from a massive cliff. Definitely worth stopping and getting your way here to check it out.

Fine to drive by but not worth a major diversion. In these hills there are many arresting views and this is but one. We stopped for five mins and on we went...

Again a SL attraction that I personally do not find particularly attractive. Yes, nice waterfall. But the approach is difficult. No stairs, lots of floating garbage and pesky vendors that try to peddle their stuff. I don't buy stuff out of principle, so they tried the coin scam on me. His daughter was collecting coins and only the 2 Euro... More

Could watch the falling water for ages. Unfortunately waterfalls are next to the road and there is not much place to sit, relax and see time pass by.

They are down a narrow bumpy road, but worth the trip. We visited them on our way from Horton Plains to Udawalawe. Well worth a visit.
